Blogger star: Rachael Jess transforms a toy chest

We love the things that Rachael Jess makes and we’re delighted to feature one of her most recent makeovers – a treasure chest from an old toy box.

Rachael has a beautiful young son and as she works full time, she treasures her weekends and aims to have both days packed out with crafts, events or activities to make precious memories from.  Once her son is asleep, she gets out the Modge Podge, sewing machine or staple gun and upcycles an unloved item she’s found at the local car boot.  It will usually contain a Marvel, Star Wars or Time Lord theme but apparently she sometimes does ‘normal’! To see more of her fabulous projects, visit her website.

As the step-by-step pictures show below, Rachael puts a lot of thought into her projects and we love the map she created for the lid of the treasure chest and the straps with gold coin decorations on the chest.

As a thank you to Rachael, we’re sending her six cans of spray paint for her next project.
